    Got our mauling guard, pass rushing DE, and Smooth, fast receiver in the 3rd.

    Werent those all the positions most were complaining about?

    Just trying to check the pulse here.

    I'm waiting for one to point out all the negatives of every pick and then tell me how most wont even make most of an impact this year.

    I am neither a gloomer nor doomer and have 0 issue with the picks. I am glad they didn't use draft capital to move up, better chance to fill those holes.

    I like the Williams pick because he's off a SEC team but not one with a great defense. He was their best front 7 player and that hasn't always been the case with picks the Cowboys made out of the SEC. They didn't do that with Charleton, he wasn't even their 3rd best player on that D.

    I don't know much about the WR but I am very glad he wasn't a 1st round pick and that Burks was gone.

    Some people came off the ledge immediately after we didnt take a WR in the first. I think that possibility was a major source of contention for some, and for good reason

    You need to read the draft threads.
    The same doom and gloomers have not been thrilled with any of our picks so far....or maybe 1 of 3 at best.

    Having said that, I'm not seeing Dallas a SB team in 2022. Hope that doesn't make me a doom and gloomer too.

    I'll stop being doom and gloom when this organization gives me a reason to think otherwise.

    You would NEVER blindly trust anything else in your life that has failed over and over for 26 straight years so why do you blindly trust the Cowboys?

    "That truck hasn't ran for 26 years, let's take it on a cross county vacation, right?"

    "That amusement park ride has been getting stuck for 26 years now. I'm sure it's fine now."

    "I don't know bud, that plane's engine has been sputtery for 26 years now, but I'm sure it'll be fine now. Wheels up!"

    Do any of you see how ridiculous your logic of "blind trust" is? Expect better and make them earn your trust.

    I have to say I am thankful they didn't do that. The teams that waited until the 2nd round look much smarter today. Heck even the Cowboys look smarter nabbing a good one in the 3rd.

    You build from the trenches out.

    I refuse to go along, Lollipops, rainbows and sunshine for me. Some of that sunshine I blow up my own skirt.

    Seriously, why be miserable about something that we just don't know about yet? There will be plenty of time to hit the Wailing Wall and Whiskey Emporium later.

    The Cowboys replaced Connor with a 3rd round project that needs a year to develop. They replaced Gregory with a player that should be in jail and got a lucky sack against Alabama. Finally Tolbert played against weak competition and had a garbage time touchdown (sound familiar) against Tennessee. So there :laugh::facepalm:. We should have drafted Linderbaum and traded up to draft the injured Michigan defensive end.

    I’m going to state for the record that starting a thread calling out people for opinions is always a negative.

    As far as the draft…didn’t like Rd 1 pick to start. I wanted Oline but we took a kid who is highly penalized and who needs coaching and our coaches didn’t show they could fix line issues last season. With that said he has the tools. As far as the next 2 picks I liked them way better as both represented value at that spot with very high upside. Loved the WR in 3rd. Yesterday they were talking him being gone in the 2nd so great grab.

    Cowboys will be competitive for sure. But them being a true contender was always going to be a stretch. This was a year of transition in getting.

    -getting out from under previous bad mistakes and bad contracts
    -rebuilding the Oline
    -Continuing to stoke up our young defense.

    Im looking at 2023 as the first year of our legitimate window if we do things right this year and next year.

    When the 6th WR, Burks, came off before 20, I breathed a sigh of relief.

    I would say that Dallas had similar talent last season at those positions and didn't win a playoff game.

    They would only stop being doom and gloomers for that one off season. Then it's back to their usual selves.

    Your comments about the 1st pick are dead on for me. However, Williams is a different player and they even benched him because of the penalties and had to bring him back in and he wasn't any better.

    They know they have this challenge with Smith coming in and he was a holding machine at times but he was the best OL on a mediocre OL. Williams was the weak link on what was a good OL.

    I look for the coaches to do the same thing to Williams in MIA because that rep will travel with him. They studied the film and knew just how to come at him.

    On the other side of this, I think Smith is a bigger meaner and stronger player now than Williams ever became. There is more for the coaches to work with.
